It’s Raining in the House

by Paloma Sermon-Daï


In the midst of a hot and stormy summer by a tourist lake, seventeen year old Purdey and her younger brother Makenzy walk the line between experiencing adolescence, finding love and fending for themselves.

While Purdey works as a cleaner in a hotel complex, Makenzy earns some money by robbing tourists. Left to their own devices, they must learn to support each other in a surprisingly tender journey that chronicles what feels like the last summer of their youth.

After the intimate “Petit Samedi”, Sermon-Dai ventures again into the inner workings of Belgium’s working class, to reveal the gentleness that lies beneath hardships.
